Single: Sharumaiken Akane – ryugu

This is a song created based on the Japanese folktale of Urashima Taro. The story is about a fisherman who rescues a sea turtle and is taken to an undersea palace, where he meets a princess. He returns home with a mysterious box, but when he opens it, he turns into an old man. The story serves as a warning against greed and curiosity.

You know I have been a huge fan of Japanese music culture and I am always looking forward to hearing more songs from this vibrant country. Especially I appreciate the discoveries of indie musicians and this one is one of them. This indie-alt pop is creating a really nice atmosphere, even though I do not understand the lyrics at all. The song was really fun to listen to and I enjoyed it very much.
